Lagos Lawmaker Shares Food Items, Cash Gifts To Constituents

Lawmaker representing Ifako-Ijaiye Constituency 01 at the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Adewale Temitope Adedeji, on Friday, distributed 1,000 live chickens, 500 bags of rice, cash gifts and other items to constituents to celebrate Easter.

The distribution of the items coincided with the 72nd birthday celebration of President Bola Tinubu, who had earlier instructed his associates and well-wishers who planned to celebrate with him to channel their donations to charity.

Commenting on the development, Hon. Adewale disclosed that the gesture was to show the essence of Easter, which is about sacrifice and to follow the instruction of President Tinubu, who has been a father and mentor to him all along.

“Easter is a time to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and the key message is about love and sacrifice. For me, it is all about bringing smiles to the faces of my constituents. I am here because they chose me as their representative, and the least I can do is to represent them well.

“Today also coincides with the birthday of my mentor and father, President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. As he rightly instructed, rather than hosting parties in his honour, people were encouraged to demonstrate love to others by donating to charity organisations.”

However, the legislator urged Christians to continue to pray for the nation, saying the current challenges will soon be a thing of the past.
